Indoor grade (.009 mil) is used anywhere it will not be directly exposed to ultra violet light (the sun). If exposed to sun light, it may yellow over time. Outdoor grade (.014 mil) provides excellent protection against ultra violet light, temperature extremes and automotive solvents. Outdoor grade will not yellow over time. Be sure to take note that our Surface Guard Tape is made of Polyurethane Material not PVC or Vinyl. These other types cannot, and will not, take the abuse that polyurethane will.

So would you lay down a layer of painter's tape first and then this helicopter tape?

The stuff I'm familiar with by that name has really sticky adhesive.

The leading edge tape is similar to 3M Paint Protection Film, so it's not made to be easily removed.

They do have other tapes, such as Gaffers Tape, which comes in all sorts of different colors and is easily removed.

I just keep giving Melissa sh** because she's had her entire front bumper covered in bright blue painter's tape since she got the car. It's like your grandmother refusing to take the plastic off of her year-old couches!

Oh, ok, I thought you might be seriously suggesting using this as a more durrable (and BLACK) alternative, in which case I was thinking laying down a layer of painter's tape first would make sense.
